Using Foundation for Emails in Windows (2019)

Tuesday, April 30, 2019 1 minute read

Last year, I wrote an article covering how I got Foundation for Emails to work in Windows. The project has been long abandoned by Zurb, but I haven't found anything that works quite so well. Fortunately, you don't need the convoluted WSL/NVM/pray-to-the-gods method that I wrote about last year. Now, you can just edit a single file, and be up and running on Windows immediately.

In the devDependencies section of package.json, simply change 'gulp' and 'gulp-sass' to newer versions:

"gulp": "^4.0.0",
"gulp-sass": "^3.1.0"

If you had this installed using the previous method, you will need to run npm --depth 9999 update or just nuke the node_modules/ folder and re-install it fresh.

If you found this useful, you might want to check out the GitHub Issues for the project, as there are a number of bug fixes and issues that Zurb haven't taken the time to merge.
